First published in 1983, Best Lawyers has published their list for more than three decades and is regarded as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Each year, attorneys are nominated by anyone but themselves for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America listing. Primary sources for the nominations include clients, fellow lawyers and marketing teams. Once nominations are collected, ballots are generated and distributed to listed lawyers who vote. Voters assess fellow lawyers on a numerical scale regarding how likely they would be to refer a case to the nominated lawyer if they weren’t able to take the case themselves. Lastly, the Best Lawyers editorial staff review the votes. By executing this evaluation process, the Best Lawyers in America listings aim to accurately capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers in regard to their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice area.
